His impressive buildings resist classification; they do not fit any particular scheme or style, as each structure is developed on an intensely intimate level. This results in wholly unique edifices, which provoke questions about humanity's use of architecture as a means of expressing timelessness, rigidity, and permanence. This volume presents 17 buildings erected by Markli over the past 15 years. Each is analyzed thoroughly with texts, plans and images. Complementing the work are enlightening essays by Florian Beigel, Philip Christou, Franz Wanner and Ellis Woodman.

    I expect to enjoy this book for years to come.I had exceedingly high expectations regarding this book. This is the fourth or fifth publication from Quart Verlag that I've read and every one of them has been exceptional in some way. It doesn't disappoint; I was pleasantly surprised by this book's quality and content.EVERYTHING ONE INVENTS IS TRUE is a follow-up to the 2002 book, APPROXIMATIONS. Those involved in this book's production have created a successful second volume that comes across as an evolution of APPROXIMATIONS. Again, a cloth binding has been used with matt paper. This book carefully straddles the line between having an elegant, artful layout while also not having too much blank space. Every aspect has been fastidiously considered.Organizationally, the similarities to APPROXIMATIONS continue. The book opens with essays about Märkli's work by others, an interview, a selection of drawings, coverage of buildings and projects with descriptions written by Märkli, and then concludes with more essays by others. Most of the buildings and projects post-date 2002, although there are two earlier projects that are covered. Particularly refreshing are details within Märkli's descriptions concerning how he works with budgetary constraints.
